Splunk Search

Improving Search Speed in Stats Query


I'd like to run search to look at average and max values for every server over an extended period of time. Currently I'm doing

index=os sourcetype="sourcetype" source="source"|stats avg(Value) max(Value) by host

But this is taking an extremely long time to run. Is there a way to make this search more efficient?

Are you running a separate search for each process? If so, you could build a simple if statement to specify the value like this

| eval CPU=if(counter="% Processor Time",'Value',"N/A")
| eval Disk=if(counter="% Free Space",'Value',"N/A")

If not then you may want to look into accelerated data models. This will run substantially faster than over the raw data
